The book is fine but strangely, it is slightly smaller in size to my others which are all originals. Solve it you! Cheers

I remember this book from my youth, many a fun day trying not to die. Some days I would even roll the dice and not keep a finger on the page I came from.

Good book, some great visuals and story.

THIS IS A REVIEW FOR STAR STRIDER NOT CHASMS OF MALICE - THE ITEM PAGES ARE INCORRECTLY LINKED ON AMAZON AND OVERWRITE EACH OTHER

The science fiction based Fighting Fantasy books never really compared to their more fantasy orientated counterparts. 'Star Strider' is no exception. It is a very mediocre adventure, lacking in depth. It is a short adventure with too basic a structure to encourage repeat reads. Anybody, with no gamebook experience, should be able to whistle through this easily enough if they are lucky enough to miss the random doors which are instant death if you open them. These doors serve no point other than to kill you without giving you a chance. This is lazy writing. Death should occur in a gamebook through a string of circumstances, making errors in judgement or lacking information, items or powers; not due to random chance. One door like this would be acceptable, but the amount in this adventure just ruins the enjoyment and pace.

This book does have its good elements though. The codes and android hacking are novel additions and the setting is reasonably intriguing if you ignore the inane football references that really serve no purpose.

Most disappointing though is the lack of character allowed for your role. You are supposed to be a bounty hunter and this book would have been better if this had been played on more. Although you do encounter bounties they just seem a little superfluous and the writer has made little effort to make them enjoyable. They should be more varied and interactive.

If you really like the science fiction gamebooks give this a go because it is far from the worst of them. But if you want something with value for money that will take more than a couple of hours you should look elsewhere.

Star Strider 30 Dec 2007
By Nancy C. Gorgol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another book in the role playing series where you can choose your own path to follow. Hard to find books. Most of these were published in the 1990s and have discontinued making them. My youngest son loves reading these types of books.
